I assume bittboy and pocket-go binaries are compatible... is there a preference on which to use for dev?
They're functionally identical internals, everything in the PocketGo CFW came from the Bittboy CFW only difference is base image/screen driver/kernel
(Miyoo) Bittboy and Pocket-Go uses a custom kernel, booting into a GUI.
OpenDingux and RetroFW are Linux distribution for some portable devices. They are maintained by different teams and for different devices.
OpenDingux is officially available only for the Dingoo A320, GCW-Zero and the Retro Mini (RS90)
RetroFW supports only Retro Game (RS97) and LDK. Next RetroFW version will also be available for the Retro Arcade (RS07)
